    I realize this is an old thread, but thought I'd offer my 2 cents...

    I see the above error with current IE (6SP1) when the attached files contain non-standard characters like a single quote when used in a possessive tense.
    ex: mike's spreadsheet.zip

    I have no idea.

    why?

    What prevents IE 5.1 from downloading normally? OmniWeb for Mac OS X doesn't work either (for that feature). What gives and is there a way around it?

    thanks.

    Browsers, even the same version, between Mac and a PC are usually vastly different. I would say it has to be something with Mac IE5.1, but I don't know what it would be.

    browsers

    We're using IE (5 and 6) on PC - which downloads correctly, and IE 5.1 on Macintosh - which does not download correctly. I thought IE would handle them both the same...


    Any help's great.
    Thanks,

    It isn't that the file names are too long but it does have to do with the browser (IIRC). Some browsers don't correctly interpret the file name when downloading files like that. What browser are you using and what other browsers does it not work on? Are they all on Macs?

    New idea

    Some of us are running macs... could it be that the filenames are too long for a Mac under OS 9, and that's why everything downloads as attachment.php?

    Attachment Problems...

    One feature of our new school message boards is that teachers can post assignments as a word or excel attachment. Everything in terms of posting the attachment works - even our custom icons show up. However, when downloading, the attachment downloads as "attachment.php" totally confusing any person. How can I make it so downloads download as what the original file was? I thought this was working before...
